I used the Stampin’ Up! Mixed Bunch and Sweet Essentials stamp sets for my card share today. The butterflies were inspired by a fabulous card that Sandi MacIver created, you can see it here. I kept mine a little more on the clean and simple side today.
I started by embossing the Tempting Turquoise panel with the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Daffodil Delight panel, then to the Melon Mambo card base with SNAIL. I stamped the Mixed Bunch images in VersaMark ink on Daffodil Delight card stock, sprinkled them with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder and punched them out with the Blossom Punch.
I used my Paper Snips and cut the top two petals off of each flower punch to create the butterfly. I also used my Bone Folder to round the remaining petals before I adhered them with SNAIL under the center and Stampin’ Dimensionals under the wings.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White card stock and adhered it to a strip of Melon Mambo card stock. I used my Paper Snips to cut the flag end and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL. I added a button from the Brights Designer Buttons and a rhinestone, adhering them both with Glue Dots. And I finished the card front by adding three rhinestones to the upper right corner.
I added a quick butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (123757 wood, 123759 clear) in Melon Mambo ink to the Whisper White panel inside the card too.
